Let's go to the cinema with our Kawaii Popcorn and Film cursor! The tradition of eating popcorn during movies started in the early days of cinema in the United States, around the 1890s. Movie theaters were primarily in urban areas and were often small, cramped spaces with poor ventilation. As a result, they tended to be hot and stuffy, and audiences would become uncomfortable and restless. To fight this, theater owners began to sell snacks and refreshments, such as popcorn, soda, and candy, to keep audiences entertained and comfortable during the movie. Popcorn was particularly popular because it was cheap, easy to prepare, and had a pleasing aroma that would fill the theater.
